Raul from Chicago, IL

I'm starting a new life by training as a welder. I need safety equipment to work!

Employers will expect me to bring equipment like steel-toed boots and a welding helmet to the job. With these items I'll be ready to start my career.


I am a father, husband, son, trying to define my life in a new life/career to eventually start a new life in a new city for a new beginning for a better life.

My goals are to accomplish getting certified as a welder and starting a career.

I would need your help in getting equipment for my new journey in welding. I need steel toed boots and welding gear: helmets, gloves, and tools.

Meeting this need will help me because it would help me in my new beginning as a welder. I have no gear for my career to be.

Need funded!

Validated by Katherine from Jane Addams Resource Corporation (What does this mean?)

Raul is new to our program and eager to learn. We will be starting job searching after he completes his certification. He will need gear before he can start working. Providing him with safety equipment will not only help to protect him but will also help us to get him a job.
